Trinity Bay ~ Upper Trinity North District

St. Jones Within Cemetery

St. Jones Within is a small fishing community in Trinity Bay, Newfoundland, first settled around 1850's. Descendants of the original families remain there today. The cemetery, located in the south east corner of the community, is the original cemetery. The oldest, standing headstone dates back to 1868. The cemetery has been kept in good condition by members of the community. Several of the oldest graves are unmarked today. Most of the graves are arranged in traditional family plots.

This information was collected by FRANK and HEATHER KING in April of 1999. Information was transcribed from each headstone and entered into a computerized database. A video record was also made of each of the headstones. Selected headstones were photographed and digitally stored on computer. While we have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
